As I mentioned in my previous post, this range is so awesome that you cannot pick just one, you know I was speaking my experience. I picked up one more shade from the range; also from the red family – Red Velvet #209. Read on to know how this fared for me.
My Experience with Maybelline Colorshow Lipstick – Red Velvet #209:
Packaging: Black body with a colored band indicating the shade range. The cap shuts with a click making this travel friendly. The shade name and number is mentioned at the bottom. Simple and effective packaging in short.
Texture: Smooth buttery texture which deposits the right amount of color in one go, does not tug or pull the lips. Also does not slip off the lips. Already said a lot about the texture in the previous post, it is just the same. The smoothness of the texture helps to blur the lines on the lips and make them look healthier, rather forgiving I would say. In short, lovely!
Pigmentation: Again same as the previous one. Superb pigmentation without feeling heavy on the lips. This shade is so pigmented that you have to be extra careful while applying, it is easy to go wrong with the outlining.
Shade: This is a very bridal shade in my opinion. I wish I got this shade when I was looking for a reddish maroon with no pink undertones. Brides-to-be please give this a shot if you want to sport the traditional reddish maroon lips on your D-day.
Staying Power: It has stayed on my lips for 5 hours flat with mini snacks and drinks and without a lip liner/primer which is impressive. With lip liner on, I believe the staying power can be improved to a certain extent.
